As to tests, pour heat vs. in pot temperature i.e. is excessive heat lost during pouring. Many claim that gooseneck kettles lose too much heat while pouring. True?
Those that make that claim probably don't hold the gooseneck spout with their free hand when pouring to insulate it from the freezing winds blowing through our homes.
Seriously, don't you know that there is no point in making this measurement? Is this a test of the tester to see how much he will do for us? I don't know how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, but I do know that the spout is hot as is the kettle when it has heated water. Though the metal spout is not as hot as the water, it is far from cold. It cannot cool the water significantly. This simple man has not noticed that the length of the spout is a problem & assures you that there is no problem.
If a test told us that the water coming out of the spout is 1, 2, or 3 degrees lower than the water inside the kettle; then, I would conclude that the amount of difference is insignicant. Maybe that is useful information.
